Solar Eclipse in Virgo – September 1st



“Get ready for a large-scale shift in energy coming your way! That’s because tomorrow, September 1st 2016, the new moon solar eclipse will be taking place in Virgo. It’s effects will be felt all over the world. That’s because both solar eclipses and new moons alike mark both the end of one energy cycle and the beginning of a new one.”

“This particular solar eclipse will effect more changes than usual because it falls in Virgo while Mercury is currently retrograde in Virgo as well. When planets are retrograde they appear to move backwards through the sky, when this happens lots of things in our lives also seem to go backwards and haywire. Combine that with the lunar and solar energy shifts and we’re in for some significant changes ahead!”


“Today, September 2nd, the solar eclipse will be annular, meaning that the moon will make the sun appear ring-like as it passes in between it and the Earth. Solar eclipses only take place when the moon is in its new moon phase and it’s lined up straight and evenly with the sun and the Earth, which is called syzygy. And while the majority of us won’t be able to witness this incredible sight in person, we will definitely feel the effects of it in our own profound way. Whether the impact turns out to be slight or completely life-altering, only time will tell. Even so, here are some of the most significant ways in which the new moon solar eclipse in Virgo may end up affecting us:”


“Some people will become much more analytical and focused on details than ever before, to the point that it may border on obsession. It’s easy for them to get side tracked and when they think too much they get bogged down. This may end up leading to a possible nervous breakdown if it’s not dealt with sooner than later. So if you find that you’re suddenly stressed over seemingly minor, meaningless types of details, do what you can to break the habit. Moving on is key because in the end all that stressing will be for nothing.”

“Some people will feel really insecure, confused, or much weaker than ever before. It’s always best to stop and relax. Take a step back when you notice yourself becoming discouraged and concentrate on switching gears. Maybe try something new to counteract and overcome those negative feelings, just don’t feed into them.”


“Some people will be emotionally sensitive and more touchy than usual. They will be quick to anger and become upset. They’ll also come out of fights unforgiving and spiteful. If you think that you have anger issues then it’s best to take extra precautions ahead of time and that you remain conscious of your words and actions. Avoid risky behavior and negativity and work hard instead. Literally do physical labor, or exercise, or throw yourself into an intensive project so that you can effectively turn your mood around.”

“What is Mercury Retrograde? Three, and sometimes four, times a year, the planet Mercury appears to be moving backwards in the sky for a period of approximately 3 weeks. “Appears” is the key word here, because, technically speaking, no planet actually moves backwards in their orbits around the Sun. In fact, they don’t even slow down. Retrograde-station-direct cycles are essentially illusions that result from our point of view from Earth, simply because the Earth is also orbiting the Sun at a different speed than the other planets. Mercury turns retrograde more frequently than any other planet. It can never be more than 28 degrees from the Sun, and whenever it reaches its furthest distance from the Sun, it changes direction.”


“Mercury is retrograde from August 30-September 22, 2016. Mercury’s shadow period begins August 10, 2016 and ends October 6, 2016. Note that the shadow period begins before Mercury turns retrograde, when Mercury first passes over the degree that Mercury later returns to in retrograde motion. The shadow period ends when Mercury again passes over the degree at which it first turned retrograde. The shadow period is different than Mercury’s storm period in astrology, which refers to the period when Mercury is moving especially slowly.”


“Mercury is retrograde approximately three times a year for approximately three weeks each time. As such, retrograde Mercury is a fairly common occurrence (Mercury is retrograde approximately 18% of the time).”


“As the planet of communication, Mercury retrograde tends to breed a certain level of confusion. Mercury rules our “lower” mind–how we perceive and interpret information that we receive from our environment, and how we relay that information to others. Mercury has rulership over such things as speaking, negotiating, buying and selling, listening, formal contracts, documents, travel, the mail and shipping, and so forth. All of these areas of life are affected when Mercury is functioning in a sluggish state. Decision-making is challenged during Mercury retrograde. Needless to say, it is not advised to sign contracts, engage in important decision-making, or launch a new business. Delays and challenges are more probable with Mercury retrograde. It’s a time when being careless with money, our personal information, or paperwork can be costly.”

“Minor breaks in the mechanical aspects of communication can actually re-connect us to other means of communication, such as when there is an unexpected power outage and we’re forced off the computer and television, finding different and often satisfying ways to entertain ourselves.”


“While Mercury is retrograde, we may be rethinking a previous opinion or idea. Looking to the signs and houses its transits can give clues as to what we may be reconsidering.”



“Pay close attention to what you say and communicate in general, particularly around the days of Mercury’s stations (August 30th and September 22), as well as around retrograde Mercury’s conjunction to the Sun on September 12th (midway between the start and end of the retro period). If you are itching to make a point with someone, especially, or if you are planning on “signing on the dotted line”, try to hold off. It is likely that you will have a change of mind once the station passes, and you can do some damage in the meantime. When a planet stations, its energies are very strong in our lives. When Mercury stations, communications have more impact, so that negative ones could have long-term implications at this time. However, if you are very clear within yourself and about what you are communicating, this can be a positive thing.”

Total Lunar Eclipse – Blood Moon 

  
Blood Moon

The Blood Moon, or Total Lunar Evlipse will be showing itself at midnight on September 27-28th.

“If Earth didn’t have an atmosphere, then, when the moon was entirely eclipsed within Earth’s shadow, the moon would would appear dark …”  

 Super Blood Moon Eclipse – midnight of September 27-28 

“During a lunar eclipse, you’ll see the Earth’s shadow creeping across the moon’s face. The shadow will appear dark, like a bite taken out of a cookie, until the shadow completely covers the moon. Then, during the breathtaking time of totality, the shadow on the moon’s face often suddenly changes. Instead of dark, it appears red. Why?”

  
“The reason stems from the air we breathe. During a total lunar eclipse, the Earth lies directly between the sun and the moon, causing the Earth to cast its shadow on the moon. If Earth didn’t have an atmosphere, then, when the moon was entirely within Earth’s shadow, the moon would would appear black, perhaps even invisible.”
“Thanks to Earth’s atmosphere, what actually happens is much more subtle and beautiful.”

  
“Earth’s atmosphere extends about 50 miles (80 kilometers) above Earth’s surface. During a total lunar eclipse, when the moon is submerged in Earth’s shadow, there is circular ring around Earth – the ring of our atmosphere – through which the sun’s rays pass.”

  
“Sunlight is composed of a range of frequencies. As sunlight passes through our atmosphere, the green to violet portion of the light spectrum is, essentially, filtered out. This same effect, by the way, is what makes our sky blue during the day. Meanwhile, the reddish portion of the spectrum is least affected.”

  
“What’s more, when this reddish light first entered the atmosphere, it was bent (refracted) toward the Earth’s surface. It’s bent again when it exits on the other side of Earth. This double bending sends the reddish light onto the moon during a total lunar eclipse.”

 

“Depending on the conditions of our atmosphere at the time of the eclipse (dust, humidity, temperature and so on can all make a difference), the surviving light will illuminate the moon with a color that ranges from copper-colored to deep red.”

“In December 1992, not long after the eruption of Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines, there was so much dust in Earth’s atmosphere that the totally eclipsed moon could barely be seen.”

“Can anyone know in advance how red the moon will appear during a total lunar eclipse? Not precisely. Before an eclipse takes place, you’ll often hear people speculating about it. That uncertainty is part of the fun of eclipses, so enjoy! And watch for the red moon during a lunar eclipse.”
